Ask the children: What did the Savior ask his disciples, and us, to do? (Follow Him!) That’s right, he asks us to follow him.

I thought we could try to do this fun maze together to see if we can find the correct path to Jesus!

Share individual maze worksheets or post the 4-page version up on the board for your Primary to work on together.

Ask the kids: At first glance – what do you notice about this puzzle? Here’s a couple answers you might receive:

  • There are footprints going in every direction! Yes, just like many people in this world we’re all walking in all sorts of different directions in life.
  • I see/found Jesus! Oh good, I’m so glad you know how to find Jesus! We’re going to try to find the right path to follow him today.
  • There are 3 colored footprints at the top. You’re right, see those 3 with color? Those are where we can start the maze. Let’s pick one and color it together while we sing!

Sing through the song again and this time have a helper (or 2 or 3) come up to pick one of the colors (orange, blue, or green) and color in some of the footprints on the path. Pick new volunteers between each time singing.

Continue singing and coloring until you find the correct path and make it all the way to Jesus!

You can add these additional thoughts about each of the path:

  • How difficult was it to follow the path of footprints to follow Jesus?
  • Did you notice that the green path weaves back and forth? Sometimes we get distracted on our journey but with the Savior’s help we can always get back on the right track!
  • The orange path looked like it was going in the right direction, but then it turned! It takes a lot of faith and courage to keep following the Savior, even when things in life get hard.
  • Did the blue path of footprints have a perfectly straight journey? Sometimes we have to course correct a little, but look how much easier the blue path was then the other 2!

Extension Activities:

  • As an extension continue to color in the additional paths even after you finish one!
  • Have the kids write a variety of “distractions” on top of some of the wrong direction footprints.
  • Have everyone form a follow the leader style line and follow you marching around the room to “practice” following in the Savior’s footsteps!
